KMO welcomes Douglas Rushkoff back to the C-Realm Podcast to talk about the themes of his most recent book, Present Shock: When Everything Happens now, and between tangets related to Scientology, the IRS, Colbert Report schwag, ceremonial magick, the faded out look of rock stars who’ve had their juju drained by millions of adoring fans and the little known collapse of WTC Building 12 on 9/11, they do manage to make at least passing reference to the themes of Doug’s book. KMO ends with listener feedback on last week’s conversation with Guy McPherson and announcements about the upcoming 2013 Age of Limits gathering and an Evolver NYC event, The Singularity is Where?

Music by Mamie Minch.

    it was cool to hear the conversation stray briefly onto coast to coast am. i wasn’t around for the art bell years, but enjoyed his brief comeback and guest host episodes. ian punnett also does a great job with the show, and george knapp’s rare episodes are fun as well. doug is spot on when he mentions that george noory is doing something different with the show now – he’s pretty much a wet noodle who will agree tentatively with anything a guest says. art bell and ian punnett are open minded, but they have interesting things to say, leading questions, and opinions of their own. george does a good job, but he’s a little too much of a teddy bear for my taste. I haven’t listened to coast in a long time because of the rising commercial to content ratio. did doug mention the name of the radio show he was talking about in connection to coast to coast?

    Coast to Coast is like a stopped clock that is right twice a day. They occasionally have a sane guest but it’s usually sandwiched between such nonsense that it is unusable as a media source. Coast to Coast is part of the Clear Channel conglomerate. One of Clear Channels main investors is Bain Capital, the company that Mitt Rmoney was head of. In other words, partisan Republicans fund a show that pushes all sorts of disinfotainment to muddy the waters.
